Jon J Murakami
Jon was born and raised in Hawaii. He graduated from the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa with a bachelor's degree in fine arts, and is perhaps best known for his line of Local Kine Greeting Cards which depict humorous occasions and holidays in Hawaii.
His regular comic strips include Calabash with the Honolulu Star-Advertiser newspaper and Generation Gap with the Hawaii Herald. Additionally Jon has illustrated several Hawaiian children’s picture and board books and self-publishes the comic books, Gordon Rider and The Ara-Rangers.
If you like Japanese sentai superheroes like Kikaida™, Kamen Rider™, and The Power Rangers™ - you may enjoy this fun filled parody about the misadventures of Gordon Rider: Hawaii's own superzero. Like Gordon Rider on Facebook for updates.
My parody of Go-Rangers™, The Power Rangers™ & Voltron™. A team of superheroes in costume with arare (Japanese rice crackers) as a theme. Silly, wacky & fun like most of my comics ^_^
You can get the many books Jon has illustrated, his Gordon Rider 10 Year Running Art Tribute Book, and his Edamame Ninjas ashcan, as well as buttons, prints and T-shirts, at his online store.
